yes, I agree but I don't think lack of awareness is the problem here,
so the only thing that is going to change that is either contributing
documentation (which, I know, is kind of hard in many cases when one
is not the author of a specific undocumented piece of code and relies
on the cooperation of the few people knowing what the state of affairs
is) or try to motivate people by asking them for a specific piece of
documentation (e.g. by opening a trac ticket) or paying them to do it,
at least that's all I can think of. After all, most of the work is
done by people in their spare time and I haven't found many developers
who enjoy writing documentation (no matter how important docs are, I
think we all agree on that).
